While driving home from work, sounds of the bitch’n hard rock group The Donnas pounding through the air, and traffic sucking the life clean out of me, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like if my vehicle had the ability to turn into something that could fly. That in mind, I started to remember the sweet show where just about every damn car, truck, and motorcycle did just that.
For today’s Thursday Throwback, we’re going to join a group of “specialists” who are “always riding hard on VENOM’s trail”. Let’s get busy with the masquerading maniacs of M.A.S.K.
Episode 1: The Deathstone – Those bastards of VENOM steal a meteorite with healing powers, and the dudes of M.A.S.K. are out to put an end to their shenanigans.
Episode 2: The Star Chariot – VENOM steals a mystical arrowhead rumored to point the way to an alien spacecraft buried in the desert (I smell an X-Files episode)
Along with the show (as every other cartoon of the 80’s did) there was a sweet ass toy line. Every single awesome conveyance was available for our wild delinquent hands to clutch tightly onto…..then smash them head first into each other.
If you ask me, the world would be a much cooler (and dangerous) place if there were such gnarly rides zooming around. As long as I had one that could fly and cruise around under water, I’d give new meaning to the word douchebag.
